Full of adventures, smiles & a few tears, give this one to all the preteens in your life (but read it yourself first). Finished this in a hammock by the riverside in Vietnam, I think Annie & California would both approve!
Theatre, Mr. Kingsley had written in tall, slashing letters of chalk on the board. “That‘s the way it is spelled” he had said. “If you ever spell this with er at the end, you will fail the assignment.”
Spooky and otherworldly. Took a couple of chapters to warm up to it, and then I couldn‘t put it down. Perfect hammock by a river read. I loved the water imagery & that the action took place in a lonely house near the ocean.
